Default Dano-Norwegian India

We actually had just briefly touched upon this subject in the Cultures and Societies of India Course at the University of Pittsburgh. To my surprise, I did not know that the Kingdoms of Denmark-Norway as so with Sweden possessed small colonies on the Indian subcontinent. This may explain how hybrid models such as these were created pairing the hilts and the blades together, as in this circumstance with King Christian V's coat of arms marker.

Attached below is a starter point link of Danish India if interested in pursuing further knowledge on this topic.
